SASI05 Greening the Economy - Achieving the Global Goals. A course for exchange students at Lund University

Greening the Economy – Achieving the Global Goals is an interdisciplinary course that addresses sustainability, climate change and how to combine economic development with a healthy environment. The aim of the course is to allow students to explore greening the economy and the sustainable development goals on four levels – individual, business, city, and nation, and look at the relationships between these levels. Practical examples of the complexities and solutions across each level are discussed. A particular focus is placed on examples from Scandinavia, but the course also features examples from Europe and around the world, which taken together provides a practical starting point for learning about greening the economy and the relationship to the sustainable development goals.

The course is comprised of five modules,

  • Introduction to greening the economy and the sustainable development goals
  • Individual choices
  • Business strategies
  • Sustainable cities
  • National policies

The course involves lectures, seminars and assignments. Seminars are compulsory, and active participation required to pass the course. Students are awarded one of the following grades: Fail, Pass or Pass with Distinction. 

On completion of the course the students shall be able to:

  • describe the basic challenges involved in the implementation of greening the economy and gain an overview of the sustainable development goals.
  • describe and contrast basic concepts, strategies and technologies that can enable greening the economy and achieving the sustainable development goals.
  • analyze, evaluate and make critical judgements on various strategies and approaches towards greening the economy and the relationship to the sustainable development goals.
  • demonstrate the ability to plan and execute course assignments within given time limits, using relevant methods for completing the assignment.
  • demonstrate the ability to  present, in written or oral form, a coherent and sustained argument related to a given question or problem of relevance to the course content.
  • reflect upon how individual choices, business strategies, sustainable cities and national policies can promote or hinder greening the economy and the relationship to the sustainable development goals.
